Assembly Bill 35, sponsored by State Representative Carol Owens (R-53), passed the Wisconsin Assembly on Wednesday, May 9. This important self-defense legislation creates immunity for an act of self-defense for any person who uses deadly force while in his or her residence and is not engaged in illegal activity. A person who uses force in self-defense or in the defense of another person may not be convicted of a crime stemming from that use of force.
This legislation now heads to the Wisconsin State Senate. Please contact your State Senator at (800) 362-9472 and respectfully urge him or her to support AB 35 for your right to self-defense.
